Writer's Guild of America Informative - The Holding of America Hostage by the WGA
We have just completed the three-month holding of America hostage by the members of the Writer's Guild of America. We had to put up with lousy television shows, and even had to hear about TV show stars who were forbidden from writing their own material because of some WGA rules.
The writers cried that because of material showing up on the internet, they were being robbed, or some such silly claims. They demanded more money for "practicing their craft." I hold that for the past ten years, at least, the writers have been defrauding people by taking money under false pretenses. Look at the list of movies over the last few years. Look at the number of remakes. Even movies that are not remakes are so unoriginal that every writer in Hollyweird should be prosecuted for plagiarism. When I can sit and predict not only what is going to happen in a movie, but most of the dialogue, then there is no originality being shown.
Every show is a barely warmed over re-hash of shows from five years ago. Now we are expected to thank the magnificent writers for ending their three months of insanity. Horse feathers!
Instead, I call for the Attorney General of the state of California and the state of New York to file criminal charges of felony fraud against any member of the Writer's Guild of America, as well as charges of conspiracy to commit fraud, as in acting in concert with other members of the WGA, writers have repeatedly taken money under false pretenses by claiming to write material for TV shows and movies, when in fact, they were stealing ideas that were old hat when the writers were children. Bring these criminals to justice!
